from the senate democratic leader harry reid and vicki kennedy. there is a chance this could pass by late september, and one of the names being mentioned as a temporary senator is the former governor and presidential candidate, michael dukakis. >> that would be the interim senator, if indeed this law were passed. how about speculation to who might run in the election five, six months from now? >> reporter: vicki kennedy has taken herself out, but joe kennedy, bobby's eldest son, a former congressman is still looking at the race. he has some money left over in his campaign chest. and there's a host of other members of congress and other sta statewide officials. there's a lot of pent up ambition in massachusetts. there hasn't been an open senate seat since john kerry first ran in 1984, 25 years ago. >> all right, george stephanopoulos reporting, thanks. >>> even though he was away from the senate for much of the last year, until just days ago, the senator was actively involved in the health care reform debate, on the phone with colleagues. some of his allies in congress harbor hopes

and concentration. plus support for heart health. that's a great call. one a day men's. trace: harry reid speaking about ted kennedy. >> one of the highlights of my life working in the united states senate was ted kennedy. he was such a friend, a model public servant, and a brilliant american icon. so many difficult times in kennedy family history, they turned to their uncle ted for comfort. so many times in our country's history, america has turned to ted kennedy for the same comfort. with a grieving first lady at arlington national cemetery, and i will never forget how his deep love for his brother bobby helped him somehow summoned the strength to deliver that eulogy. as patriarch, he grieved with us with a loss of john john. for decades, ted kennedy was the rock of his family. he has left us to remember. it is now up to us to celebrate the senator who has helped so many live better lives. as a student at utah state university, i formed to the first young democrats club. i got a letter from president- elect kennedy. it was between the time that he had been elected and before he was inaugurated.
the president has to decide to step up and really frame this for us. the leadership can do it. harry reid, i think, has worked hard. i know max baucus is working hard on the finance committee. we put a bill back together in july, as you know, david. teddy's committee, i was asked to chair temporarily for him. a good bill. it was 300 amendments as part of that effort. most of them technical, but many are substantive. that bill has been sitting will. we're ready to work on that along with the finance committee and to move forward. that's what needs to happen here. my belief is that if we can get these bills together and sit down with each other, we can produce a strong vibrant, vitally needed health care reform legislation of accessibility, of course, quality, and affordable. >> i want to get a final thought. first from you senator dodd. as you sit here this morning after all the emotion of the past week, what is the meaning of senator kennedy, the man and the legislator that you are thinking about this morning? >> well, john, i think said it very well. one thing that was so difficult. how do
language here. on the liberal side, nancy pelosi calling protesters un-american. harry reid calling opponents of health care evil mongers. nadler saying fascist. pelosi calling insurance companies "the real villains." the conservative side, sarah palin saying obama's death panel down right evil. chuck grassley saying every right to fear death panels. a congressman from georgia saying this is a steam roller of socialism. john boehner last month saying government-encouraged euthenasia included in the health care plan. we heard that echoed from newt gingrich as well. >>> pat buchanan, the splilness in this debate just escalating, now you have nadler talking about fascism. >> let me tell you, i just did a column and i have polls out. this is insanity on liberal democrats. 64% of moderates say the protesters are behaving appropriately and 40% of democrats say that. and by almost two to one, people who know about the protesters identify with them, not against them. joe, there's a story today about a congressman in the neighboring district, congressman boyd. he held three town hall meeting

to vote today or tomorrow on pumping another $2 billion into the program. majority leader harry reid said it will pass. >> cash for clunkers, we'll pass cash for clunkers. >> when will you do that? >> before we leave here. >> you think ask you the votes for it? >> yes. >> cash for clunkers would eventually perhaps end friday. republican leaders say they will not block this vote. >>> a quebec dad said he's sorry, sort of, for letting his 7-year-old son drive the family car with the rest of the family in the back seat. the father insists nobody was ever in danger. this is video shot from two years ago, but just arrived on youtube and it's a huge hit. the boy is seen driving on a rural road and it's obviously in the rain. there are the wipers going. the father said he was proud of his boy, he put it on the web to impress his friends, but a lot of outrage. police in quebec are investigating. >>> u.s. military is updating its facebook status. drafting new policy on facebook, myspace and twitter. they have banned networking sites, though they allow troops to access them from their own personal
of control spending, spiraling debt and liberalism. a spokesman for senate majority leader harry reid said the group is distorting the truth and engaging in sleazy campaign tactics. >>> time for our i-report of the day. roger savitz shot this video in maine and said these turkeys are hanging out in the road causing a traffic jam. looking cute, though. you give us your views and turkeys. head to cnn.com/robin to learn how you can become an i-reporter. thanks for that. that was cute. >>> if you're annoyed by those pre-recorded robo calls trying to sell you something, some help is on the way for you. many of those calls are being banned by the government. our money expert jennifer westhoven is here and jen, not all robo calls are being banned, though, right? >> yes, but what's that at dinner? what's that? could it be the sound of silence? >> thank goodness. >> a lot less fewer calls. robo calls from companies will not be allowed starting tomorrow. you can still legally get them from charities, politicians and debt collectors, they got exemptions but the ftc says telemarketers must get written
] >> a vote for cloture it is a procedural vote and i would suspect to support senator harry reid on a bill he wants to bring up to cut off debate on a motion to proceed so the issue can be taken up. that was illustrated when there were 49 republican senators a couple of years ago, and employees free choice act came out, i was the sole republican who voted for cloture so we could take of the bill. it was not to say that i was for the bill, because i am for the principles of a union certification and first contract, but that is an illustration on a procedural issue where i would vote to take up the bill. i think the legislation ought to be considered by the senate. i am not saying there might not be an extreme case where there was a first amendment issue, or if somebody wanted to cut back on the way i supported hate crimes legislation, or the way i have supported fairness and equality for gays, that i might not if there is a constitutional issue. but i expect to be a book to support cloture. -- i expect to be able to support cloture. >> next question? >> senator specter, i am a constituent of y
. >> part of this goes to the vacuum now being left in the senate and the fact is harry reid and mitch mcconnell have the title of leader but there seems to be universal acknowledgement when teddy was at his active best, he could command that leadership in the senate. is there any way that vacuum gets filled short term or is it going to take awhile before the senate self-selects the next teddy. >> i think a couple points about that. a younger generation of reporters are covering washington and covering it at such a polarized time. you talk to brokaw or tim russert when he was alive, you recall an era where bipartisanship of the type ta we saw with ted kennedy was possible. it attracted that kind of person and ted kennedy was able to thrive there. now you've got president obama facing such a polarized institution in the senate and certainly that in the house. it makes it a lot more difficult. so the question of who picks up the mantle and whether patrick kennedy does that a question. >> hillary clinton and joe biden a year ago, i think those were the first two names people would have said,
with patients and doctors in charge not government and insurance companies. tell harry reid we can't afford government-run health care. laura: frank, your thoughts on. this it's off the chart with republicans. it's what they will believe. we already spent trillions of dollars and now we are going to add to our debt? and health care is supposed to be a personal issue. not a health care issue. even the democrats agree with this ad. what works so effectively, laura, is it is not hyperbole. it's not extreme. it's states fact after fact after fact and the american people can follow it. laura: after the news broke that the obama administration underestimated the deficit by a figure of $2 trillion as george will said not a rounding error. that's got to make this even more powerful. as people are seeing these revisions of deficit projections and also the shrinking of the economy that we now see is going to be greater than we thought before. that has to be even more effective. >> it's a simple question, how much is this going to cost? look, the american people do believe that the healthcare system h
? is america now in decline because of the radical views of this president, nancy pelosi and harry reid? >> i think that there's a lack of an optimistic message. we're not hearing so much about what america is going to be and how we're going to get there. i don't want to blame that completely on probe. i think that there's an overall mood, people are just anxious and nervous. part of it is because they don't see any positive impact of the policies, in fact, they're seeing the opposite. a great example of that is when -- if they really are it serious about stimulus, then help retrain people for a job, put the money in community colleges and empower people to go, be retrained for a job to replace the one. sean: do you think too many people, cash for clunkers, refrigerators, college, housing, do you think too many people have almost forgotten what the institution's about, what freedom's, what liberty's about and they're adopting the false promises of a government that will offer them anything in their per suit of snow shower >> never forget the words of margaret thatcher. the problem with social
and more important than that, a 60th democratic vote in the snoot. why harry reid, the democratic leader in the united states senate has been calling for this, i think patrick and the democratic leaders will be able to get it done. >> so that would be the reason that the republicans might stand down on opposition on the understanding this would not be a five-month jump-start on the special election for whoever got appointed? does that -- and does that mean, then, it's more likely -- less likely to be the prosecutor from the infamous nanny case, martha coakley and more somebody like governor dukakis? >> yes, absolutely. if it were to be the attorney general coakley who wants to run, interested in running if john kerry won the presidency in 2004. very ambitious. that would scotch the deal right there. it would have to be somebody like mike dukakis, talked about a lot. certain historic justice from a democratic state to have a former democratic standard bearer take that job and mike dukakis policy is up on the issues, would be perfect for the job. that's the kind of person that would have t
harry reid! it's tough! you don't sometimes give credit to these guys. they represent districts that can swing just like that. they have to hit the middle of the road voter to win and need them. in massachusetts, you just need the democrats. >> but with democrats, if you're for the wage earner, you don't have to worry about reeke reelection. >> i worked for senators from utah, for example, frank moss who had a -- he got blown away by orrin hatch. if you're from a state not liberal, i don't care how pro liberal you are, you get beaten. >> what did it mean in president obama's campaign to get an endorsement and what reaction to this day do the clintons have about that? >> let me give you the positive part of it. >> yes. >> bobby is probably going to be known forever as a brother. the books about him will be the last brother. he is primarily a brother to his brothers. joe jr. who lost his life in the war, he never forgot him. always loyal to the memory of his brother and to jack and to bobby. i think he extended that brotherhood to barack obama. he made him the new brother and i think that
and budget committee, kent conrad, others, harry reid, others on our side, republicans as well. >> rose: are you taking some lead from the government of california on health care. >> arnold.th i wonder if he's watching me. i have to be very careful. listen, i wrote him a littlett note. you bet i did. >> rose: you're looking like a democrat or what? >> he's working it through out there. he's got some very ambitious aspects. >> rose: as hemb consulted with you?on >> he doesn't ask me about.... >> rose: you've had no phone conversations about health care with the governor of californiav >> we see each other usually upy at cape cod. maybe on opposite sides of the senate floor. if i get marie on my side.... >> rose: you win. (laughs) >> just quickly, i think he's got a good proposal out there and i think we've got 13 states that are trying to do something. i think fact that the president's budget cuts back on the medicaid, cuts back on medicare. you know, the budget is a moral document about a nation's prior's the and it's going to make it very, very difficult for the states... the president
: what is your prediction as to the reaction from speaker pelosi and harry reid's article yesterday? guest: there are certainly many different opinions. kathleen sebelius was speaking and a woman introduced her, and the minute they introduced her, people were screaming at her and telling her to shut up. there is certainly a hope that we can have several discussions. americans really want to talk about this and the elected representatives want to hear from you. we hope there williwill be robut debate. there is nothing with that, but it needs to be civil. host: wallace, kansas. go ahead. caller: right now the only thing we have to go by concretely, for those opposed were in favor of health-care reform, it is legislation. if we are happy with our present insurance, we will be able to maintain that. yet, if any changes are made to our plan at work, if we have a child, and someone to the policy, or we lose our job, then we would have to factor the effective date of this plan and go with the government option, leaving private insurance to wither on the vine. do you find it perhaps the dis
majority leader harry reid. >> as the health-care conversation continues, c- span's healthcare hobbs is an important resource. go online and follow the latest tweets, video advertisements, and links. keep up with town hall meetings, house and senate debate and even up low your opinion about health care with a citizen video. lobbying, influence, and money. have to use the internet to provide transparency in government. tonight at 8:00 eastern time on c-span to. host: our guest now is jim martin, the founder of the 60 plus association here to talk to us about older americans that health care. when is your group's position on the bills that are out there right now? guest: the proposals that have been put forth, we say first, do no harm. let's not take a wrecking ball to a system that works very well for seniors. we say, do not throw the baby out with the bathwater. quite frankly, this bill is so large and so complicated and so misunderstood and misinterpreted, we have already seen improvements in the proposal, whether it is the public option, that the president has backed away from. we
back and his comments? guest: i think he was spot on. we have harry reid, the senate majority leader, calling the protesters going to these town halls evil-mongers. we have nancy pelosi saying that they are dressed as the nazis and using not he-like tactics to silence people. -- nazi-like tactics. if you go on craigslist on the classified as a new type in obama or reform in most major metropolitan areas under the subsection, you will find the csiu and you will find people being paid $16 per hour to go to these town hall meetings. i don't know if anyone on the right is being paid to show up in this town hall meetings but i guess that you have to be financed by george soros to be a real act of desperation host: host: this caller asks for one republican who is promoting fairness guest: \ guest: many people have suggested and john kerry said he would like to see it come back in place. the democrats are not legislating desperate they are appointed people to the fcc, the body that impose the fairness doctrine that will start to do this again. we're starting to see it, setting local standar
vilified as a un-american or evil-mongers which harry reid said a few days ago. when you hear all the attacks and demeaning you and me the activities we are undertaking on behalf of freedom, take heart because the american public is looking at the other side's attacks on us and they are looking at their preposterous stands on this issue. their statements on the issue. they are siding with us. americans are about common sense and they get when their freedoms are its stake and they stand up and fight when -- for those freedoms and your in the vanguard. i am encouraged by the poll numbers. i want to take a moment and tell you about americans for prosperity and americans for prosperity foundation. it started four and a half years ago. it was an idea that asked a question. we know that whenever there is a budget fight or tax battle, whether in washington or state capital, we know there are going to be people on the big government side. you always see that. maybe that is the public employee union standing up and saying we need the money for this government service. maybe it is for the r
their final respects to ted kennedy. his funeral is today. the majority leader harry reid is leading that delegation of about 40 senators at the funeral today. we're going to bring that to you live when it happens. our lady of perpetual help, where the funeral will take place. not just the senators there, jimmy carter, bill clinton and george w. bush as well as british prime minister and the irish prime minister. >> this is happening around 10:30, when the actual funeral will take place. there was a memorial service last night. of course, we saw during the day his body was lying in repose at the kennedy library in boston. about 45,000 people we're told actually filed past to pay their respects, then another 25,000 were there at that memorial service last night. our dan lothian -- no. tom foreman will take a look now at what we saw yesterday in that memorial service. ♪ god bless america >> reporter: at a presidential library at the edge on the ocean, the people came in waves. ted kennedy was bigger than life for many. to family and friends alike, he preached the gospel of the little
